I took up writing erotic romance at age 62. She could easily dismiss me as neither erotic nor romantic. I haven’t made a dime in royalties yet, but I have publishing contracts for four books. Who knows? She lets me play in my sandbox without ridicule or expectations.
4) Say, “I Love You” every day.
“One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love!” – Sophocles
I tell my wife I love her every day. I never heard that from my father growing up, but it crucial. My boys are 23 and 20 now and don’t flinch at saying “I love you dad” in front of friends. I also add a frequent dose of “I’m so proud of you”. I believe if men added those two phrases to their lexicon all this transformation we want for men would happen much faster.
5) Have Cocktails and Pleasant Conversation Together
I come from a family that drinks, but doesn’t tolerate drunkenness. Growing up, our family tradition was to have cocktails and pleasant conversation every evening. Obviously we couldn’t do that while our children were young, too many activities happen after dinner. Now that they are older and we don’t have to do the incessant chasing around, we have taken up the practice again. Many nights it’s just my wife and I. It’s very civilized. We talk about the big events of the day, about the things we achieved. No human endeavor is outside our purview, the only rule is civil discourse, which eliminates a lot of talk of politics. It serves as a delightful signal of the end of the day and a connection.
My mother enjoyed her cocktails right up until her last day. We even brushed some of her beloved vodka martinis on her lips when she became comatose, just to let her know she was still part of the cocktail conversation.
We’ve lost the art of pleasant conversation. Especially between men and women. We need to get it back. Try it, you’ll like it. But don’t drink and drive.
“Every true and deep love is a sacrifice.” – Carl Jung
